Bookworm

What I'm currently reading....

I haven’t been blogging much as of late because I’ve been hella busy at work and tired when I get home. In addition to that, my writing mojo seems to have taken its own summer vacation. What I have been doing, is giving my Nook Color a good workout by devouring some of the e-books I’ve been hoarding.

Folks who are friends with me on Facebook, know that I push e-books like crack. #ImYoPusha

So, this post will be a round up of sorts, of my favorite links to get get free and/or cheap e-books for both Kindle and Nook. There are other e-readers out there for Sony and Kobo, but I don’t care about them. I’m sticking to the BIG TWO. LOL!

First off, if you like to read and don’t want to or cannot afford a Kindle or a Nook, then download the FREE apps for your computer or smart phone.

For Nook

For Kindle

Now, you have NO excuse to not get your read on.

Here are the best blogs and links that I’ve come across for Nook books –

The Cheap – originally Cheap e-reads on Blogger, the Cheap and a similar site called Nook Deals  decided to combine their efforts and are now operating on the same site. There are several FB pages that have been set up as offshoots of the main page  (Cheap e-Reads) based on genre.

Nook Jr. – kids books

Nook Teen – young adult books

NookLove – romance

Casting Pearls – Christian fiction/non-fiction

There are probably more sites that I am not listing here but these are my main go to places. The activity on the blog and FB pages moves fast so if you see a book you want you probably should get it as e-book prices change rapidly.

Here are some resources I’ve seen for Kindle owners –

Pixel and Ink (they also have an FB page)

Books on the Knob (some Nook books too, but primarily Kindle)

Kindle on the Cheap (ran by the folks at The Cheap, it’s an FB page)

Some other places to find e-books –

Inkmesh

Smashwords (running a sale on e-books, free with promo code until July 31st!)

Feedbooks

Project Gutenberg (free classic books here, most with expired copyrights)

I think of this should get ya’ll started on your merry reading ways. If there are any other questions, leave me a comment.

By the way, what are you reading these days????

  1. I just finished ‘Silver Sparrow’ by Tayari Jones and ‘Getting to Happy’ by Terry McMillan. I’m about to start on ‘Playing My Mother’s Blues’ by Valerie Wilson Wesley.

  2. I just finished The Help and I’m working on 33 Candles I think its called?

    • I just read 33 Candles a few weeks ago and enjoyed it. It’s not something I would usually read but the great thing about the free/cheap ebooks is that I’m reading books I normally wouldn’t consider.

  3. Thanks for this! I’ve been wanting a Nook forever, but the main thing holding me back is cost. E-books may be cheaper than new hardcovers, but for a library card using, used book buyer they’re still typically more than I’m used to paying. Some of these sites may finally sway me.

    • IIRC, you can borrow e-books from the library for the Nook. I also think you can borrow/lend books among friends. I have a Kindle and that’s the one area I think the Nook is superior although Kindle is supposed to be compatible with the library books by the end of the year.
